An extraordinary man - achieving against all oddsJon Snow
[A] powerful account of a year-long journey to Britain... As a call for Europe and Britain to do more for the world's refugees, the book is as powerful as that harrowing picture of the dead toddler on the beach.
This is a harrowing but necessary must-read about an exceptional young man.
The Lightless Sky is a heart-rending read that illuminates the plight of unaccompanied minors forced to leave their homes and loved ones. [Passarlay's] fierce intelligence is apparent throughout... His powerful account is a testament to the courage of all those fleeing conflict in search of safety.
The Independent on Sunday
Beautifully written... It should be required reading in British schools.
